Mahler Symphony No.5 (72')
Vasily Petrenko conductor

*Members from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir
At the beginning of his Fifth Symphony, Gustav Mahler stands alone in a world of tragedy. A trumpet sounds in the darkness; the start of a journey through terror, triumph and (of course) the heart-rending Adagietto - Mahler’s musical love-letter to his young wife. It’s an emotional return for Vasily Petrenko, in music that’s close to his heart. But first, hear the Choir in a brand new work by Grace-Evangeline Mason, based on Mahler's love letters to his wife.
